Perfecting Your Skin with Makari Toning Cleanser & Soap

I was sent this product. As always I am sharing my own, honest opinions.

If you follow me on Snapchat then you have seen me sans make up and know that I suffer from dark spots on my face.  I am so happy to be collaborating with Makari and making steps toward more even-toned skin. The soap pictured is their antiacne sulfur soap. For those who are prone to pimples, this is the soap for you. It is an instant detoxifier that reduces breakouts and blemishes. You only need to apply it once a day and you can follow it up with the cleansing toner.

The Makari Purifying & Cleansing Toner is in beautiful packaging like all of the products and has be nice scent. Based on your skin type you can use the product once or twice per day. When I try new skincare products especially for my face, I like to slowly incorporate them into my regimen so I am doing once per day. Of course this means that results might take longer, but I do this as a precaution in case of a bad/allergic reaction. 

The Makari Purifying & Cleansing Toner should be applied with a cotton pad and does not need to be rinsed off! After applying, I recommend following up with the Makari Caviara Face Cream. Results can be seen in as little as a week. I want to use the product for a little longer to see how much my dark spots will disappear, but I can say that my face looks more fresh and radiant already. 

 

Beso Del Sol Sangria

(For 21+/Please Drink Responsibly) Beso Del Sol sent me a few sangrias to try.As always, I am sharing my honest opinions.

It's Wine Wednesday, and I am happy to share with you Beso Del Sol Sangria! The company launched in 2014 and offers all-natural Sangria imported from Spain. Beso Del Sol means "Kiss from the Sun" and can be served over ice and with or without additional fruit. You can drink it by itself chilled or even make a tasty punch or cocktail. Since this is my first time trying it, I chose to try the Sangria by itself. The Red is 100% estate-grown Tempranillo, blended with Spanish orange, lemon, and a hint of cinnamon. The White is 100% estate-grown Airen, blended with Spanish lemon, peach, and mango. My favorite, is the new added Rose Sangria also known as Beso Del Sol Pink.  is 100% estate-grown Temranillo, blended with Spanish orange, lemon, peach, mango, and a hint of cinnamon.

You can pick up Beso Del Sol in a Three Liter Bag in Box, Grab & Go, or in a 1.5L Screwcap Glass Bottle from Publix, Walgreens, Whole Foods, and Safeway among other retailers. If you are not familiar with bag in box packaging, they are great because the vacuum-sealed bag collapses on itself as your beverage is dispensing. This preserves the Sangria keeping it fully fresh for 6 weeks after opening without the need for refrigeration. The Grab & Go is easily portable and re-sealable and holds 500mL of delicousness!

Even though Fall is technically here, it's still warm in Nashville so a refreshing Sangria is perfect! Once the weather starts to get cooler, I will be creating some Fall cocktails with Beso Del Sol so be sure to check back and follow me on Instagram!

Cantu + Luster's New Products!

As you know, I was one of the Beauty Influencers for Dollar General's 3rd Annual A Day of Beauty. Before the event, I along with the other influencers had the opportunity to visit the booth's and chat with the brand reps and ask questions about their new products! I want to share a few of the products that I am most excited to try:

The Cantu Refesh Dry Co-Wash is made with apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil, and Shea butter. This will be my first time trying a dry co-wash, but for the days I am on the go this seems like a great option. The product is supposed to "bring your look back to life" all while giving your hair the moisture it needs minus the residue!

Oh, and I MUST share this men's line product from Cantu! I picked up the Cantu Shea Butter Beard Oil for Si. He is going to try it out and we will do a video and review on our joint brand, Our Elevated Journey!

Another product I am excited to try is the Luster's Pink She butter Coconut Oil Leave in Conditioner. I already use the regular shampoo and conditioner from the Luster's Pink line, and I love it because it leaves my hair feeling so soft after I wash it! Even thought this will be my first time trying their silkening leave in conditioner, I do have high expectations and will be sure to check back in over the next few weeks to let you know my thoughts on it and the Cantu Dry Co-Wash!

{RECAP + GIVEAWAY} Dollar General A Day of Beauty

The 3rd Annual Dollar General A Day of Beauty was nothing short of amazing! First, let me start by mentioning that the event was held in a much larger space than the previous two years and it was still full! The line was so long, that I could not even see the end of it. This year's event theme was Beauty from the Inside Out! and seeing all shades of people and hair types attend the event was truly a beautiful sight!

Once the doors opened and everyone rushed in, they were able visit the beauty booths and not only get products to fill their bags but also see demonstrations, listen to Q&As, and receive beauty applications. I loved all of the booths, but I must share my faves and let you know why they stood out. Up first, the Pantene and Olay booth was set up so beautifully. They had a white faux fur rug laid out on the ground with black and gold accent pieces. Chukie Amos who is a celebrity stylist was doing live demonstrations using the Pantene Gold Series - and was SUH-LAYING every single style! Felicia of This That Beauty hosted the Q&A for Olay which highlighted the importance of wearing sunscreen.

At Broadway's booth, guests could get lash or press on nails application. The lashes ranged from natural/everyday to fun and flirty. It seemed as if the ladies really loved this booth because the line was never short!

I have always loved Luster's Pink Shampoo & Conditioner so I was very happy to get some new products to try from their hair care line. Their photo booth was so much fun and was filled with a lot of props. S Curl is also under the Luster's brand and their section of the booth featured live demos of products and even hair cuts!

With the theme of Beauty from the Inside Out, it's only right that several people took the main stage who shared their stories, encouragement, and inspiration - these individuals included Kim Field, panelists, and soul singer Vivian Green - who rocked the house!!

As one of the Beauty Influencers for the event, I am grateful to have received quite a bit of product. So as a thank you to my followers for all of the continued support, I am having an Instagram Giveaway!! To enter, click the image below and it will take you to the post!!

If you didn't attend this year's event, you truly missed out. Luckily, you now know that you MUST ATTEND next year!!
